Perfect Distraction: 25.10.11 Tracey Thorn ‘Night Time’ Strange Feeling Records

Today I’ve been transported back to those Tracey days. Her latest EP includes a wonderful cover of the xx’s Night Time. Enough said. The xx always had me from the first moment they appeared, delivering me hook, line and sinker back to those mohair covered, floppy hair, unrequited love filled teenage years. Add one of the actual voices that soundtracked those days to the mix and the result is addictive.

And with the sublime Charles Webster remix of ‘Swimming’ onboard this is the kind of pleasant thorny distraction one can’t help but wallow in.
